We’ve all been quite confused and baffled by Lil Uzi Vert‘s music situation. Is he actually done? Is this all just a publicity stunt? We’ve been getting some pretty mixed messages on the whole thing. Now, the rapper speaks out in regards to his record label, claiming “I gotta figure it out”.

Lil Uzi Vert fans were lost when the XO tour Llif3 rapper announced he quit music and deleted everything.



Fans became even more confused when Vert was announced on the lineup for Rolling Loud festival in Miami. Pretty strange for someone who wanted to go back to being “normal” thanks to problems with his label.

Some believe this is nothing more than a publicity stunt to promote his forthcoming album. Others believe he really is scrapping the entire thing and starting over.

Now, Vert is dishing some details on his music situation as well as his current record label Atlantic Records.

“I gotta figure it out,” he says in a recently released video shared by DJ Akademiks on Instagram.

“I really just want them to respect me. They just gotta respect because like I respect them, that’s the reason why I really went over there,” he adds. “Like normal shit, it’s just a different level in life. Everybody go through the same shit.”

This isn’t the first time Vert has taken issue with his label. Just last month he took to social media to express his frustrations on the delay of his upcoming album, Eternal Atake.

“You think I don’t wanna drop music? You just gotta understand, when people don’t love you, they’ll hold your life if you sign a motherfucking … Hold that shit against you … And that go for the streets too. You ain’t supposed to sign no motherfucking paper in the streets because that’s ratting. How the fuck I even sign this shit as a deal? Motherfucker set myself up. What other way I was suppose to let this shit go? Shit, it be all good at first just like them motherfucking rats. Motherfuckers be right out of jail.”

Eternal Atake would have been Lil Uzi Vert’s follow-up album to his 2017 Luv Is Rage 2. The album did not have a set release date but was set to drop in 2019.
